The Art Place in the Palm Desert Design District has been a destination for professionals in the home building industry for over 20 years. Many of the business owners and designers at The Art Place work closely with building professionals on remodels, new homes and business construction. It is this relationship between the builders and the designers that are the glue that hold the 1st Annual Builders Expo together. To ensure a balanced and well attended Expo, The Art Place has teamed up with the Desert Valley Builders Association (DVBA) to promote the event valley-wide.

 The Builders Expo will provide you the opportunity to meet members of the building and construction industry all in one place. You’ll have a chance to listen to exhibitors, try out new products, attend demonstrations and compare features. Education is essential when building a home or business. Seminars and workshops will keep you updated and allow you the chance to speak directly with the experts.

Once you finish getting the information you need to build your home or office, you can browse the many boutique shops at The Art place for art and décor to furnish it. You’ll find everything you need to design your dream home. Choose from a huge selection of fine art, flowers, fabrics, glass, high-end furniture and decor.


“The response from the building and design community so far has been overwhelming,” Said jon Fitzhenry of Fitwell Home. Members of the building community realize what a great opportunity this is to build business to business relationships (no pun intended) while showcasing their company. There are still openings for exhibitors but, spaces are booking up quickly

 In addition to the great shopping, information and entertainment, there will be food, music and raffle prizes! Make sure you like The Art Place on Facebook to stay up to date on other special events!
